The much anticipated return of death metal supergroup Bloodbath has so far been given mixed reaction. The music is still patented Bloodbath Swedish death metal, but the group’s new vocalist in Paradise Lost‘s Nick Holms doesn’t quite live up to the fuller roars of former frontman Mikael Akerfeldt. It’s always poor practice to judge an album based on one single, of course, so it’s best to reserve judgement until the new album, Grand Morbid Funeral, drops next month. In the mean time, we’ve been given another new track, ‘Famine of God’s Word’, which you can stream after the jump.
Grand Morbid Funeral is out November 18th via Peaceville Records. So are your hopes squashed yet or are you even more eager for the return of Bloodbath?
